Going Green

Learn About Our Sustainable Hotel in Palo Alto

At The Zen Hotel “sustainable” is more than just a buzzword. Protecting and preserving the vital natural resources of the Bay Area lie at the heart of everything we do. Management and staff work hard to minimize the impact our operations have on the world around us while ensuring our guests have a relaxing and memorable experience.

Our commitment begins with the simple things. We use only green detergents, limit our water usage and take the 3-Rs (reduce, reuse and recycle) very seriously. But look around our building and you’ll notice other ways we strive for sustainability.

The Zen Hotel has been renovated using natural, sustainable and eco-friendly materials. Our courtyard is also designed with the environment in mind, including the use of permeable pavers. Inside the rooms, you’ll find high-efficiency LED lamps, and guests are invited to help us by participating in our towel and linen re-use program.

Within our breakfast buffet, most of our disposable cups, plates and utensil are bio-degradable and in many cases fully compostable.

All these measures mean you’ll have peace of mind knowing you’re staying at an establishment that’s dedicated to going green and operating in as sustainable a manner as possible. If you have any suggestions on how The Zen Hotel can be even greener, please pass your suggestions along to our staff.
